It’s finally here. The Giants waited until Monday, after every other MLB team, to announce their player pool for Spring Training 2.0 which will begin Friday at Oracle Park. San Francisco will have to whittle this group down to 30 players by the start of the regular season at the end of July. Here’s the list:

The biggest takeaway is that the club’s top three prospects — catcher Joey Bart, outfielder Heliot Ramos, infielder Marco Luciano (18 years old) — all made the cut. Hunter Bishop, the team’s first round pick last year, was omitted after testing positive for COVID-19 according to Farhan Zaidi. His symptoms are reportedly mild.
There are only 51 players on this list rather than the maximum of 60. Chris Shaw, Melvin Adon, Jandel Gustave, Kean Wong and Jose Siri were all in camp during spring training in Arizona, and could be added at a later date.
